Her first non-stage work was on television with guest starring roles in Happy Days, Mork and Mindy and Laverne and Shirley. In the early to mid-eighties she was on the path to better roles when she did three back-to-back movies that showcased all of her assets.
Unfortunately, those three projects, the women's wrestling film, All the Marbles, the break dance movie, Body Rock and the film version of A Chorus Line, were either box office or critical flops, which left the talents of Vicki Frederick nowhere to go but to lower budget movies like Chopper Chicks in Zombietown with a then unknown actor named Billy Bob Thornton. But there was no Sling Blade to bring her talents to the attention of the masses and she soon disappeared from the business.
Check out her wonderful dancing and singing as Sheila in A Chorus Line and then watch her perform her own stunts in All the Marbles and you will see for yourself why Vicki Frederick is Not Very Famous...but should be. Oh, and Ms. Frederick, if you happen to stumble on to this, let us know where you've been. We miss you.
